Just watched "Hud" because I'd heard of it for years & it had Oscars & an all-star cast.
I guess "bored" would be the best description of my reaction.
And I noticed that Paul Newman played the same annoying, arrogant, shallow, unlikeable pondscum he played in Cool Hand Luke, Butch Cassidy, Slap Shot, and Judge Roy Bean.
Did he ever play anyone likeable?
As an aside, I did find it amusing to hear Newman in "Hud" use the phrase "salad dressing" in a sneering, derisive tone. The irony was not lost on me.
